We've all seen the videos of men, women and children alike flying off of hoverboards.
Well, a hoverboard will NOT be the reason the Panthers miss out on a championship.
Coach Rivera has banned the futuristic toys. When asked by the media about his "anti-hoverboard policy, he responded, "Did you see those things on YouTube blowing up and stuff?"
He has a point there. There have been numerous accounts of the boards spontaneously bursting into flames...not to mention the countless accidents that could occur while riding. Rivera's concern was peaked when he caught two of his players racing.
The coach hasn't gone as far as banning them outside of the team facility, although he has mentioned an interest in doing so. We'll see if his protective nature gets them all the way...
